VICTORIAN MAJOLICA MONKEY WALL POCKET.  Circa 1880

 

This unusual Victorian Majolica Wall Pocket dates from circa 1880.

The climbing Monkey is holding a large Coconut Shell which would hold a small arrangement of flowers, foliage or small fruit.

The Wall Pocket is marked to the bottom left corner with the impressed initials W & R within a diamond-shaped lozenge.  Opinion is divided as to whether this is the mark of the Longton, Staffordshire Potters Wayte & Ridge or the London Importers Wittman & Roth.  Either way he looks impressive hung on the wall.

 

The condition is good.  The bottom right corner of the tree bark has been reglued and overpainted.

Height:  18 inches (46 cm)
